Thats right folks the images previously lost to my phone magically turned up, what a strange turn of events often computers never do things of this nature, so thank you wisened computer god
yup long awaited and fairly interesting,
I like the image of the ripped up billboard, glad I got a picture of it before it was covered up with a "where the wild things are" poster
and of course, Karys yay for Karys (xxyz)
So in a fit of random boredom I gave all the macs in the studio cute anime style faces aww look at them all, like a weird group of characters ready to take over the world!
Pav said "I go away for one day and look at the vandalism that happens"
Reece and I blamed Chris, he took the rap, what a legend
before you feel sorry for Chris the rap involved Pav sighing and Chris shrugging but still an epic tale!

Didnt have time to write anything before hand, but its all pretty self explanatory, basically I got some hardback books and mutilated them,
- 1st book is my main project sketchbook for my notes and shiz (I'm going to be selling emotions as a product pretty cool huh).
- 2nd book Is my typography wordplay book for exploring logos and little typographic experiments.
- 3rd book is my notes and doodles sketchbook
- 4th book was an experiment with cutting pages out to form letters (like my initials gain pretty cool)
I intend to fill these and several much larger books (3 or 4 A2 x 20pages and 2 A1x10-20 pages equalling 80 A2 pages (160 A3 or 320 A4 ) of work) by the end of the term, and a proportion of that before Christmas.
I will also be working on some live briefs from real live design companies, I'm having a consultancy meeting this Saturday for one of them and am awaiting email communication concerning the details of another
Hope that explains the book pictures

That's right I am now the proud owner of a pair of proper old school DJ vinyl decks, currently I have only 4 pieces of vinyl but aim to have more soon, (I'm going to raid charity shops and occasionally shell out for "good" music haha) I have been spending many a glorious hour watching in wonder as the pin glides across the plastic surface and makes music as if by magic,
Only have one of the decks set up at the moment as I need to get some leads and a new stylus in order to make use of the nice yellow cross-fader I have as part of this magical little bundle. Now tooled up I can begin work on living my dream of being a hardcore cool king of the dance floor worshipped by everyone hip hop happening G DJ haha (well might be pretty cool to try it)
I may also try Having my computer and/or a synth plugged in one side of the cross-fader and a deck in the other in order to make "venetian snares/Aaron Funk" style experimental music (well I need a backup in case I cant from a band at uni, I SHALL BE MY OWN (lonely) BAND!)
watch this space (for the record (see what I did there) free decks totally beat free accordian
All the photos on my phone taken in November, even though we are deep into December as I type,
unfortunately some photos have been lost as my phone is gay and doesn't understand the concept of
a) photograph numbering
b) deleting files
c) generally not being a massive piece of arse
